What the hell did Charlotte do, besides watch their team crumble.

Being a Carolina resident I'll just post some on this topic. It was said before. The people of Charlotte hate the owner. This is Basketball Country. We have the ACC right here, and there are plenty of people in Charlotte who would go to the Hornets games, but the owner (Shinn?) has basically alienated the whole city. It's been suggested to him several times to sell the team, and the fans will go back, but he keeps refusing, and saying he'd rather move than give up his team. Just my 2 cents

Any chance the Hornets could get New Orleans' old team name back? I mean, what do Jazz and Utah have in common? The New Orleans Jazz conjures up memories of Pistol Pete Maravich, and that's got to be good. (Ok, I don't have those memories, but I'm sure some people do.)

Nope,it won't hapen look at the Lakers and Kings for example, but if the move does happen the Hornets name may change(merchandise agreement expires in 2004 from what I understand). I do not believe it will go back o the Jazz though.

some names have come up

It'll be some crappy name like the "New Orleans Wave" or someting similarly stupid.

Whats with the NBA switching around teams to failed ABA sites?
